Excellent post on the deployment of Lync 2013 via Script: Unifiedme.co.uk

I customized the Lync installation using the Office /admin application (see above) and then pushed this out to users via script/GPO. This is a very basic script to check whether Lync is already installed, if not then will run the setup.exe using the custom installer in the “updates” folder.

REM Note the setup.exe uses a custom .MSP to install lync with settings, registry keys and product activation.
 
@echo off
if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\lync.exe" goto quit
if exist "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\lync.exe" goto quit
if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Lync\communicator.exe" goto quit
:install
\\server\Software\SW_DVD5_Lync_2013_32-BIT_X64_English_MLF_X18-54527\setup.exe
:quit
exit

I’d be interested to know if there is a much better way to do this as it really is very basic and doesn’t include error handling.
